    Thanks! That's helpful. Did some more reading and learned that ISO VG is kinematic viscosity done at 40 degC. So, does that mean that...

    Is viscosity index the same as iso? If so, then this shows 153 for dexron vi.

    And Dexron VI viscosity is very close to that of SHC 629 at about 153. I have read more about oil than I ever thought i would. It...

    Awesome! So, Mobile SHC 629 is equivalent to Synlube 150, and Synlube 150 is 80W90.

    Thanks for the info. This is great! I found that Chevron also makes an iso 150 oil that showed as equivalent to the Mobile SHC 629. Also...

    Thanks for the info. Would you mind sharing how 75-90 is incompatible (aside from the difference in viscosity )? Trying to decide how...

    Same here. I think that I will hang on to the 2014 P85+. Bought a Y for the wife. Nice car, but I like the P85+ much more.

    Plasmid_Boy replied to the thread Oil selection help.
    Interesting. IIRC, that's what I used for the rear. I didn't understand why they specified a different oil for the front. Thanks for...

    BTW @HellsKitchen , you don't happen to be Gordon Ramsay, are you? If so, give us an epic freak out when the price increase is announced. 😆

    The language in the contract could probably protect them in court, but it doesn't prevent losing a pissed off customer for life. I for...

    Thanks for sharing that. I will probably need to do the same thing on the 70D soon.

    Yeah, I am not sure either. I also looked up the specs and decided on the 75/90 because I was familiar with it. It’s my go to oil for...

    I was hoping to see a better solution for future reference. I had the problem finding the oil. Ended up using this synthetic gear oil.

    Plasmid_Boy replied to the thread Model s 85D 2015 won't heat.
    Don’t know for sure since the part number is different from mine (6007385-00-J). I replaced with the same part number. But I would guess...
